AT&T Statement on Broadband, Equity, Access and Deployment (BEAD) and Digital Equity Program Participation

Statement from Ed Gillespie, Senior Executive Vice President of External & Legislative Affairs, AT&T:

“Closing the digital divide is a step closer with all 50 states now participating in the federal Broadband, Equity, Access and Deployment (BEAD) and Digital Equity programs. This is a pivotal moment in the country’s efforts to bring high-speed internet to unserved and underserved areas. AT&T commends the NTIA for its work and looks forward to working with local, state and federal officials to reach the bipartisan goal of connecting all Americans.”
